About Me

Hi there, I'm Rachael

My writing journey began at ten years old when, after hearing one of the many crazy ideas I had in my head, my mom said: "you should really write that down." I haven't stopped writing since.

I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts & Sciences from the University of Guelph, in Ontario, with specializations in Zoology and Classical Studies. For those who don't know, Zoology is the study of animals and their environment, and Classical Studies focuses on ancient Greece and Rome. Yes, that is a very strange combination, and I loved it. 


Since graduating I moved back to my hometown of Vancouver, Canada, where I now work in ocean conservation education. My job is to tell stories about the ocean, to kids all around the world. It provides great inspiration for the stories I write, and that I hope you enjoy.
